    I don't get their willingness to endorse the GOP every.single.time no matter that the GOP platform puts in BIG BOLD LETTERS that they're not liked and are never even going to be given scraps of equality.  Maybe all they really care about are the tax cuts that the GOP fights for so vociferously though, in that case, why not just call your group something like "Gay Americans for Tax Cuts" or something?  Why pretend to care about equality when you continue to endorse a group that doesn't even pretend to care about it?  And then they had the nerve to start complaining about President Obama and Democrats in 2010 about DADT?

      the irony of the reference to the President who freed the slaves is astounding, given that their party is dead set against equality of any kind.

      Just when you thought there wasn't a dime's worth of difference between the two parties, the Republicans go and prove you're wrong.

      The LCR refused to endorse Bush over one of his more obnoxious gay-bashing statements. At that time, I read that their bylaws had them only endorsing Republicans. They don't automatically endorse Republicans, but they are prevented from endorsing any Democrats.

      party ages ago. Back when they were around they were actually able to not endorse Bush Sr. in 1992 and George W in 2004.

      In fact, the occasional victory for the GOP cannot hide the fact that this country is fast heading into another era, not of two-party democracy, but a party-and-a-half system. And the GOP is the half a party- Larry Sabato
